Chapter 2: INFORMATION SOCIETY SERVICES, INTERNAL MARKET AND ILLEGAL CONTENT
This chapter addresses the position of online service providers in the light of the EU harmonization rules on e-commerce and the legal framework concerning the cross-border provision of such services. The concept of information society services provider in the context of the collaborative economy and its internal market implications are discussed. The country of origin principle and its interplay with the general choice of law rules are also analysed, including its implications on the liability regime applicable to platforms and other intermediaries. Jurisdiction and choice of law issues posed by the dissemination of unlawful content over the Internet and other related torts are also addressed in detail.
